How does one lower the scan resolution on the Dell 2135cn? Currently, a document of twenty - or so - pages, saves to a pdf file of ten-plus megabytes. Far too large to attach to email.


You need to adjust the resolution in the software. Are you using the Dell software and PaperPort or another application?

This will be easiest to do when you launch the scan from the computer. If you have the TWAIN driver loaded, load the document to scan in the ADF and open Paperport. Click FileScan and the available scanners list should open. Choose your scanner (otherwise click the Select button on the left side of the window). Then click OK. Click on the Scanner Display dialog box on the left of the window. Click on Preview. Then adjust the resolution by clicking on the Image Quality tab.

If the document contains is only a series of picture or you have the WIA driver loaded, then use Paint or PhotoGallery (Vista includes the program, but it is available for XP or Windows 7). Then choose File > Import from Camera or Scanner > From Scanner. Open the Advanced Properties dialog box by clicking on Adjust the Quality of the Scanned picture.

I hope this helps.

(The default resolution is used when you launch a scan from the unit itself. It is possible to adjust it once the software loads but you must use the scan to file option, instead of scan to e-mail. Then attach the resultant file to your e-mail.)

How do I scan from j4680 to computer to email? Device says "no scan option" and refers me to non-existent product documentation


What OS do you have? Did you install the HP drivers or a generic driver from the OS? The generic driver only runs the printer features of the all-in-one.

If you need the drivers or full software see: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3692888& . Select your OS and then click Next. On the next page expand the section labeled drivers. If you have the generic driver installed, uninstall the all-in-one and then remove the data cable (USB). Reboot and then install the HP software. Diagnost tools are available from the above site as well.

Next make sure that the cable is good and the unit is directly connected to the computer by a cable that is 6' or less in length. Scanning requires bi-directional communication and can fail when the printer works. (Replacing the cable is a simple thing to try.)

If you have the full HP software installed, you need to set up the destination buttons in the software before the buttons on the unit will work. Scan from the Solution Center on your computer a few times to find the best defaults to include in the settings. Click Settings then Scan Settings. In the section Scan To Setup, Add destinations the click Update the Device. The scan buttons on the unit will not work and launch the Solution Center unless the full software is installed and a monitoring program is running on the computer. See http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02450835&tmp_task=solveCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3692888#N81 to set up the program for your OS.

If you have the basic driver installed, you can scan from the computer. Windows XP, Vista and 7 have built-in programs that can acquire scans. Paint is on all three systems (File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan). Windows Vista and 7 add Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan). Vista includes Photo Gallery (it is available as an optional download for XP or 7).

I hope this helps.

How to scan into my computer


Hello, I am happy to help you with your question. Samsung SCX-4200 supplies software calls Samsung Smarthru. This software application includes a scan command. The software is locagted on the CD that accompanied the printer.

Here are some excerpts from the manual:

Your machine offers the following ways to scan an image:

• From TWAIN-compliant software: You can use other

software including Adobe Photoshop Deluxe and Adobe

Photoshop.

• From the Windows images Acquisition (WIA) driver: Your

machine supports the WIA driver for scanning images.

• From the Samsung SmarThru software: Launch Samsung

SmarThru and open Scan To to begin scanning.

NOTE: To scan with your machine, you must install the
software.


Loading document

You can use the document glass to load an original document

for copying and scanning.

1 Lift and open the document cover.

2 Place the document face down on the document glass

and align it with the registration guide at the top left

corner of the glass.

3 Close the document cover. Be careful not to move the

document.

NOTES:

• Leaving the document cover open while copying may affect

copy quality and toner consumption.


So, basically, if you have the software installed. Open the Smarthru software, load your original onto the glass, face down, and close the lid. Select scan, the software may provide you with a preview of the scanned image. Once you scan the document, you must save it to a location on your hard drive, often it is called "My Scans" in your "my documents" file.

I hope that this is helpful. I have attached a link directly to the Samsung website manual for your model

Need a cd for my lexmark x5470.please advise .Jim


You can download the Lexmark X5470 driver from the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/aNFBAO. When scanning documents for editing, you will need the Lexmark OCR scan software which is only available in the installation disk. Contact Lexmark technical support for assistance with the scan software. Thank you for choosing Lexmark.

How can I scan a document?


First do you have the full software installed or just a generic OS driver? http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=emea_middle_east&product=3177566&os=219&lang=en has the drivers for supported OS versions. Sometimes the generic driver only runs the printer.

It is best to start your scanner from the computer the first time. The buttons on the scanner will only work after you set the destinations in the software, if the monitoring program is running. Place your document face down on the glass (or face up in an ADF). Launch the HP Solution Center (Start > All Programs > HP folder > Solution Center or by double-clicking the shortcut on the desktop) Click the appropriate button (Scan Picture or Scan Document) and adjust the settings as needed. Click Scan. Use the Help function to set up the destinations for using the buttons on the all-in-one.

If you want to scan without using the HP Solution Center, you can't use the buttons on the scanner. Paint (XP, Vista or Win7) will acquire scans (File > Import from Camera or Scanner). Vista (some versions) and Win7 have Windows Fax and Scan as well (New Scan). Vista comes with Photo Gallery (and the program is available as a free download for Win7) that can also acquire scans.

I hope this helps.

I have an hp psc 1210, I have managed to figure out how to print from my comp, but how do I scan things to my computer


Scanning depends on a few things (OS, drivers). Did you install the full-featured software or the generic driver from the OS? (See the HP support site: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=90764& for drivers/software.) If you have installed the generic driver and a full software package is available, uninstall the driver, unplug the all-in-one from the computer and install the full software. Then reconnect the data cable.

Place the document to be scanned face down on the glass. (Document feeders need the document face up with the top edge entering the feed first.)

Depending on the setup, you can launch the software from your computer. Double-click on the icon on the desktop or (in Windows) Start > All Programs > HP folder and then click on the HP Director. (Once this software is set up for the scan destinations, if the monitor program is running, you'll be able to press the scanner button on the all-in-one to launch the scan. This is under Settings) Once the program is running, click Scan Picture or Scan Document depending on the item to be scanned. Adjust resolution and other settings as needed - try the default first. Click Scan. If doing a preview scan then click Accept when satisfied with the settings.

If you do not have the full software available for your OS or simply do not want to use that software, you have some alternatives. Windows XP, Vista and 7 all can acquire scans in Paint. (Open the program, then File > From Scanner or Camera) Some versions of Vista and Win7 included Windows Fax and Scan which also acquires the scans (just click New scan). Vista has another program that can acquire scans (Photo Gallery IIRC). Macs may have similar software available. In both cases, third-party software is also available.

If your computer doesn't see the scanner, check the cables. Scanners require bi-directional communication with the computer so a cable that allows printing can be a problem with the scanner. Try a new cable or plugging in to a different port. If you have a USB hub or print server, try a direct connection.

I hope this helps.

How do I use my scanning feature? I need step by step instructions to get a scanning job down. Where do I find the instructions?


Are you using the full-featured software or the generic driver in the OS? The generic drivers often only run the printer. The full software must be installed before the USB cable is connected to the all-in-one. If you have the generic driver, uninstall it first.

HP has many help files on scanning (depending on your OS and set-up)
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documentSubCategory?tmp_rule=23133&tmp_task=useCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=1153481

Basically, put the document face down on the glass (or face up in a document feeder) If the full-featured software is installed, start the HP Solution Center (Start > All Programs > HP (folder) > HP Solution Center (slightly different for Macs) or double-click on the icon for the program on the desktop.). Click on the Scan Photo or Scan Document icon in the software and set the resolution and other settings when the pop-up comes up. Set up the destination (Scan to, File Type, etc) Then click Scan. If you get a preview scan, you can make adjustments and then Scan.

If you have the Scan to destinations set up for the buttons, you can use the buttons on the scanner if the monitor program is running (Scan Photo and Scan Document) See the programs help to set up these shortcuts.

If you have XP, Vista or Win7, you can also scan into Paint (File, Import from Camera or Scanner in Win7). Vista has another program that will aquire scans. Win7 has Windows Fax and Scan (click on the New Scan button).

Scanning needs two-way communication so print servers and USB hubs can interfere. A new USB cable or connecting to a different USB port (direct connection) are quick things to try if you can't get a scan to complete.

I hope this helps.

My HP F4210 can´t create PDF format from scanned documents. I run VISTA. Stefan


It's not the scanner that creates the PDF, you need scanning software capable of saving scanned image as PDF. loaded on your computer. The software determines where to send and how to save a scanned document.

Trying to scan a document and cannot scan


Try un-installing the scanner and reinstall then shut down and restart even if not requested .
If using Generic drivers try and obtain Manufactures drivers from website .. these are usually free....but contain utilities that the generic drivers will not . if you let xp load your scanner it will only have used a generic program suitable for most scanners of that type but not necessarily yours . if you cant get them rom the manufactures website try bit torrent or for a slight fee Driver Detective ......Vortash
